Since you're given the dimensions of the garden, calculate the area of the entire garden.

Subtract the given area of the flowers to get the area of the "inside of the garden."

The width of the flower border is x. Now write an equation for the area of the inside of the garden using x. (Refer to your diagram to help you.) What equation do you get?

(I made a mistake. The border is an addition, so this is the correct info...)

It will be very helpful to draw a diagram to model this situation.

Since you're given the dimensions of the garden, calculate the area of the garden without the border addition.

Add the given area of the flowers to get the area of the entire garden with the addition.

The width of the flower border is x. Now write an equation for the area of the entire garden with the border addition using x. (Refer to your diagram to help you.) What equation do you get?
